Fishtail Kitchen in Weymouth, MA

Last night, my husband and I went out to a movie, and decided to get some take out on our way home. We ended up stopping at a new restaurant in Weymouth, Fishtail Kitchen. Fishtail Kitchen specializes in Indian and Nepalese cuisine.  They are located at 532 Pond Street in South Weymouth, in a non-descript strip mall next to Papa Gino's.

The space is small but warm, with about 10 tables.  At 9pm on a Friday night, most of the tables were taken, and the staff seemed very busy.  We told the gentleman who greeted us we were interested in placing an order for take out.  He sat us at a table with menus and gave us water to drink while we decided on what to order.  We got an order of garlic naan, and I chose the Malai Kofta (balls of minced vegetables simmers in cardamon, saffron, garlic and cashew cream sauce) while Paul chose Chicken Saagwala (delicately spiced boneless chicken with spinach).  We both chose a "medium" level of spice for our dishes.

While we were pleased that we were seated and given water at our table just for a take out order, we were made to wait over 30 minutes before our order was ready.  The server was very apologetic for the long wait, but for take out, that was a little too much of a wait our our taste.

However, upon getting home and sampling our food, we were very pleased with the cuisine.  While Paul stated that there was not enough chicken in his dish, what was there was very good and tender, and he enjoyed the flavor.  My Kofta was very good as well.  Nicely seasoned with a very smooth, creamy sauce to go with it.  For me, it could have been a little hotter.  I was expecting a little more of a spicy kick.  Maybe next time I will need to order a "hot" level of spice to get that kick.

The naan was good, neither better nor worse than any other I had in the past, as was the basmati rice.  It was cooked well, but again on par with other rice I have had in the past.

All and all, Fishtail Kitchen is worth a try, if you are willing to wait to eat!
